That would be the ultimate boondoggle. If he does that, they will know they can beat him down with pressure anytime he does something they don't like. Things will go right back to large numbers of people taking advantage of catch and release bringing children illegally across the border on dangerous journeys, abusing the asylum laws, and more child trafficking. This is exactly what the Democrats want by the way. They don't care about the consequences open borders have on kids such as those being trafficked, unaccompanied minors, smugglers, etc. They don't want to fix anything. They want status quo. Schumer is demanding Trump do this.
It would be an embarrassment for the White House which first of all has handled this poorly from a communications perspective. If this is your policy, you know it is going to get a reaction like this. You should have an A game communications department ready to set the narrative. Instead, Trump did not do a good job articulating it by just blaming the Democrats without explanation. The only person that explained it well was Neilson, but that was days too late when everyone from Trump to his surrogates should have been sticking to that explanation. Meanwhile, the communication's staff continues to allow the narrative to be out there that Trump put's kids in cages when he's using the same facilities that Obama used. No one has even bothered to put out comparison photos. Trump should have Tweeted them.
The best way to handle this - sign the Ted Cruz bill. Support it and vote on it. This will end the catch and release loophole, will add more judges, and keep the families together. I know they want comprehensive reform, but the Cruz Bill deals with a specific problem and can end this situation. It will end the bad PR with midterms coming up, and the kids will be happy. Work on everything else after.
Trump really needs to do an address to the nation free of media spin on the immigration crisis too.
Not a good idea to do that. That was the problem with Obama.
Here is the Tweet - It’s new from John Roberts:
EXCLUSIVE: @realDonaldTrump considering some sort of executive action today to allow children to stay with detained parents through immigration adjudication process. Sources say Admin believes it is likely to draw a court challenge on the basis of Flores v Reno
That won’t stop the rage.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyKDFTofVY4 — spinless Republicans if he does it.
Do NOT cave in, Mr. President.
THIS is why we elected you.
Why not double down instead?
So lock the kids up with the parents/adults....
How’s that, liberal fools????
He's going to beef up the courts, make them see a judge, then send their asses back to country of origin. Not going to let them game the system for a future court date.
This has been a very effective manufactured hysteria.
The correct response is to say that it's a non-issue. Parents are separated from children all the time when the parents are detained or incarcerated for criminal actions. Illegal immigration should be no exception. There is absolutely no justification to giving illegal immigrants some kind of privileged status with respect to this or any other course of treatment except as a PR move.
Trump is smart and the Libs are going to scream, read the tweet: “through immigration adjudication process”.
He’s going to beef up the courts, make them see a judge, then send their asses back to country of origin. Not going to let them game the system for a future court date
send them back home
So effective that even many conservatives who are otherwise hawkish on immigration have bought into the BS.
Well, this is how its done! IE blaming Trump and getting all those illegals across the border to stay. If the GOP had raised a ruckus and lied all over the place, we could have had mueller gone by now. Thats how its done!
I dont agree with repaying lies and lawlessness, with the wrong side getting their way. I dont agree letting ANY more bodies coming across our southern borders.. now or ever!! This is not right and I hate to see ryan capitulating once again... over the wrong thing.
Ryan talking... ryan giving in.. makes it come back on Trump, who was keeping a promise to his voters!!
There has been no kick back on obama and hillary having the problem... its okay with the loud voices for those 2 to do just about anything.. and I hate it! Does all this bring more Trump voters? or are the pictures of children a game changer? And how ... HOW .. can they rationalize abortion if children matter? They are thin brained, thin skinned and they have no business making decisions for the rest of us who still have a brain and common sense!
That’s the best way to do it. Make every one of them see a judge. Hopefully a Trump appointed Judge.
Mexico is allowing these wretched people free passage to the US. Make them Mexico's problem and that will stop.
A useful word of wisdom:
Never tear down a fence until you fully understand why it was put up in the first place.
I have no problem if he changes the policy to allowing families to remain together, as long as they are prosecuted for illegal entry, and deported.
Yep. He's going to leave them with family and kick their asses out at same. LOL!
